Crossfield Publishing Is Very Proud To Release Its Latest Book,

The Granby Liar, By Maurice J.O. Crossfield

St. Marys, Ontario, Canada (Oct. 30, 2017)

Synopsis of the Novel

It’s July 1975 and Dave Rogers has just landed his first reporting job at the Granby Leader Mail. Having grown up in Montreal, it’s not a part of Quebec’s Eastern Townships he knows very well, despite having been born there. Amidst the stories of little old ladies turning 100, petty thefts and small town politics, Dave soon finds himself covering real news. But before long he’s raised the ire of the local crime boss, the mother of a cattle thief, and an English rights vigilante group. Not to mention the mysterious characters who seem to be watching his every move, or the father he barely remembers who haunts his dreams. There are longstanding scores to be settled, but extracting truth from the lies pushes Dave to the limits of what he can, and can’t, live with.
